Anisah is a contemporary shawl featuring a textured cable and lace panel surrounded by classic garter stitch. The asymmetrical triangular shaping begins with just a few stitches which then flow into a wide panel composed of a graceful cable flanked by mesh lace. While that panel forms the left edge of the shawl, the remainder of the body is filled with squishy garter goodness. The combination of lace, cables, reverse stockinette and garter stitch knitted in worsted or DK weight makes the texture of all the various design elements really pop.
The size is adjustable.
Anisah is also an excellent pattern for adventuresome beginners to try their hand at simple lace, cables and triangular shaping. Plus it’s a fun and fast knit for more experienced knitters looking for a relaxing TV knit.
